The camping check list gives you an idea what you need in terms of clothing, toiletries and first aid. No need to sit hours thinking of what you might need, just check the list.
You are welcome to add or leave items to match your needs as you may think that some things are just too much, it all depends on your personal preferences.
If you want to have an idea what foodstuff to pack or what you will need for cleaning and odds and ends, requirements for shelter, cooking and eating as well as additional camping gear these camping check lists will be a great help.
What we wear when relaxing is a personal preference. It's best to pack comfortable clothes suited for the season when camping.
Always check a long-term weather forecast to find out what the weather will be like during a camping trip at a specific place.
It is also very important to take enough clothing for the duration of the stay unless you know if there is a laundry facility at the campsite.
Take enough for all conditions that will prevail while camping. Especially for children that might need changing more often.
Memory: To save place and weight, which is always a matter to consider, I take small containers of shampoo, body cream and personal toiletries. Sometimes distributors give out samples of products these are just the right size to collect for the next trip.
Sample sachets are convenient for any trip, collect them wherever you can and keep for later use.
A first aid kit is easy to put together, no need to buy an expensive one. Make sure to take all prescription medication along as well as other medication the camping party might need while out in the bush.
These items are the most needed items when going away. For ideas how to compile your own first aid kit have a peek on this page.
Store shampoo and other bottles with fluids in Zip-lock bags to prevent from spilling while traveling. Place in bag and let all the air out before sealing. This will prevent the lid from popping open, and if it does the fluid will leak into the bag without getting everything in a mess.
Adjust the camping check list according to your own needs and requirements.
